November brings Thanksgiving, a time for gratitude and remembering. November also brings the observance of Native American Heritage Month, an opportunity to become more educated about the complex history and current state of affairs of indigenous people.
Like all stories, Native stories are not a single story of defeat, bows and arrows, or of the past. They include stories of joy, of cultural pride, of meeting everyday challenges, fun, and celebrations of family and friendship. Check out the reading list from our friends at Brightly, and visit the Native Learning Center for more glimpses into Native stories.
